Numatic Engineering has been leading the competition with our involvement in electronic motion control since the late1980’s. Beginning with programmable controllers, variable frequency and servo motors we branched into robotic controls in the late 1990’s. Robots are in essence multi-axis of servo motion control integrated into one device and controller for high precision and reliability. They are mechanically self-guided minimizing the need to design supporting mechanisms. Going with this advanced incorporated solution saves time and money during the design manufacturing of equipment. Robots have been commercially built for over 30 years and are commonplace in manufacturing. Numatic Engineering partners with Yamaha and Mitsubishi for some of the most reliable robotic products on the market today.
Many of Numatic Engineering’s world-class manufacturing partners are suppliers for First Robotics. The First Robotics mission is to inspire kids, ages 9-18, to become science, engineering and technology leaders. By building robotics as part of a team, kids are learning self-confidence, leadership and communication. Our First Robotics supplying companies include Bimba, SMC, 80/20 Inc. and Freelin-Wade. This program is essential to the motivation and advancement of our advancing technological future. There are many First Robotics teams competing in events across the United States that test their knowledge and skills against others.
With the cost decreasing, flexibility and reliability increasing, robotics has become one of the most efficient means in providing quality manufacturing solutions. Most Cartesian robots and SCARA robots from both Mitsubishi and Yamaha are offered in clean-room models.
Standard features include:
